An editorial In the New Tork Sun
few days ago stated that If tbe report
was true that the legislature of Cali
fornia had amended the registration laws
In order to relieve women of the "un
pleasant necessity of having tbelr real

One scarcely knows how to Interpret
this frank confession of disappointment.
If one Is a suffragist does It mean
that by tlrtue of her faith In that cause
she is reckoned as stronger In mind and
more discerning In her appreciation of
talues than the aterage run of woman
hood' And does It signify that she is
without the weaknesses bred In her sex
by j ears of consistent training? If that
is the proper way to look at It, then
there Is a subtle and quite pleasing com
pliment in the statement. In spite of
the at owed disappointment. That is,
there Is a compliment to one on that side

Because, regret It as we may, condemn

to the admitted fact that years ago.
when marriage was practically wom

its handmaiden, beaut, were the chief the

Indeed, she was quite willing to con

It goes without salng that an lotion
containing a fatty product would tend
to Increase rather than decrease the dif
ficult, and, as the majority of creams
do contain a fatt product, much con
sideration should be given, first of all.
to the selection of the proper ointment
or lotion to be ued The oni excuse
for using a cream or ointment at all
upon an oily skin Is for the purpose of
lubrlcatlntr the fingers In following a
masage. and. as It Is usually the fleshy
faco that is Inclined to olliness,
hol'oug to fill out. the reason for the
massage is to induce better circulation
Then there is another thing to be
guarded against in the selection of a
cream Man ointments on the market
contain an Irritant that temporarilj stim
ulates the c rculation and creates a still
freer action of the fattj matter. Intsead
of arresting it Incidental-. It also stim
ulates hair growth Usually the irritant
is tincture of canthardes
A cream made from milk or some
vegetable matter, like a Jelly of witch
hazel or seaweed, cucumber, or lettuce.
Is recommended A thorough and fre
quent washing with almond meal and
water is also adv-tntageous in bringing
about improvement in an oil skin
For t onrif Pores.
W here the pores of the skin are coarse
or inordinately large. It is wise to em
ploy an astringent First cleanse the
face well, then appl the astringent, say
a concentrated solution of alum, morn
ing and night, regularl Make the ap
plication with absorbent cotton.
Many women hate been In the habit
of using a few drops of benzoin in water
for a face wash, regardless of the tex
ture of their skins, but benzoin, while
It has some astringent properties, is
sticky, and. accordingly, invites dirt and
dust particles into the pores, causing
greater enlargement and producing
blackheads. The alum solution Is much
to be preferred
About the samn routine will be ob
served In caring for an oily skin as for a
dr, except that water may be used
more frcel. and a different lotion Etery
night the face should be washed thor
ough!, but gentl, with almond meal in
the water, and ns thoroughly rinsed, then
follow with the gentlest possible mas
sage, the fingers dipped In the tegetable
oil, as suggested, and after this the alum
Use Alum Water.
In the morning shower the face with
hot water, then with cold alum water.
This induces circulation in place of the
massage taken at night.
Most oily skins hate a tendency to
sh'ne more or less radiantly, and until
the condition of the skin Is changed
through the treatment Just suggested the
powder box is the Inevitable resort. Dust
the face lightly with a powder which
5'cu know to contain no injurious Ingre
dients, such as zinc or bismuth, whicn
are apt to cause not onl eruptions, but
troubles of a more serious nature. Rice
powder Is harmless and soothing, and,
of course, there are many powders on
the market which are harmless for one
skin, but which would not do at all for
another. Therefore, It is best to try one,
watch its effect carefully, and If the
sl'ghtest ill effect results, reject It and
procure another, which will Drove the
most economical procedure in the end.

RetoIutioHi and Sent Them
A memorial on the death of' Alvin M.
Lothrop passed by the board of mana
gers ot the Young Men's Christian Asso
ciation at Us first meeting since Mr,
Lothrop's death was forwarded to his
daughter, Mrs. Luttercll. last night. Mr,
Lothrop was a large benefactor of the

nected with it as an official. The memo
rial was drawn up by Dr. Morrill E.
Gates, former president of Rutgers Col
lege, who Is a member of the board.
Is as follows:
"Alvin M. Lothrop was a most useful
member of the board of managers ot
the T. M. C. A. of Washington. His
generosity, enthusiastic spirit, his most
friendly and sympathetic address and
manners, and his constant Interest not
only In the business affairs of the asso
ciation and the Improvement and main
tenance of Its property, but also In the
personnel of Its secretarial force and In
the young men of Its membership, ren
dered him an exceptionally helpful, a
most highly valued, and a deeply loved
member of our board His gifts of
money to the work were spontaneous.
were often entirely unsolicited, and were
most generous in their amount and in
their steadily recurring frequency. Best
of all, with his many gifts he gave him
self In love to the work his trained
business Judgment, his deep personal In
terest, his whole-hearted sympath. For
the gracious charm of his unfailing
cneerruiness in good work, for his faith
In Jesus Christ, and for his genius for
friendship and his interest in men one
by one. we shall remember him with
gratitude and love To his daughter we
send the assurance of our deep sympathy
and the loss which we all feel, but which
is heaviest for her."
